Another NBA trade rumor has surfaced and it includes a seven-player deal between Los Angeles Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Philadelphia 76ers. The three teams are said to be considering to acquire Kevin Love and Dario Saric to Lakers, Nerlens Noel, Lou Williams and Jose Calderon for Cavaliers while 76ers chooses D'Angelo Russell and Nick Young.
According to reports, the three teams are currently negotiating the seven-player blockbuster deal but no confirmation has been made yet. There are ways to determine the possibility of this trade such as by analyzing whether the deal is allowed under the rules and salary cap. In this case, it does follow the rules so the 7 trade deal would be possible if all 3 teams agree on the limitations of the offer.
However, when analyzing each team's roster, the seven-player trade may not be good for each team. Experts say Lakers don't need Kevin Love if they already have a power forward in Julius Randle and Yi Jianlian. Changing their roster can affect their backcourt strength. Kevin Love is a rising star but he's not equipped in the backcourt. Cavaliers wouldn't give Love too as he is one of their powerful players to defend their title. The deal for 76ers isn't too bad giving up Nerlens Noel and Dario Saric for D'Angelo Russel and Nick Young but why the other team would allow this to happen.
On the other hand, there are also reports that only two of the said three teams are involved in discussing a deal. This is between Lakers and 76ers who are considering to trade D'Angelo Russel and Julius Randle in exchange of Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. As of today, there is no confirmation has been given for this rumor either so fans will have to wait and see.
